kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
chopped fresh basil
This is a great weekday dinner recipe. The flavors are really delicious and, if you have any leftovers, this dish gets even better with time.
YUM - better cold
Um, maybe the item that was MISSING was the OLIVES? If there are only 5 ingredients, leaving one out and then complaining is just silly. This recipe was delish: I put more peppers and more olives and only marinated an hour and it was Great! WHOLE family loved it!
I made this pasta dish for dinner last night and although I only had three hours to marinate it, it was still great. I substituted half of the pasta shells with beef stuffed ravioli and it was so delicious. Will definitely make it again.
This was a hit with my family. With all the chopping I didn't think it was so quick, but consider it reasonable preparation time for a weeknight dinner. It was an easy recipe to follow and most of all, tasted great!
I've been wanting to try this recipe out for weeks but didn't have many of the ingredients on hand. I still had to substitute a couple of ingredients, though (manzanilla olives in place of the kalamatas, and halved grape tomatoes since I had those on hand.) I did not make the dressing ahead of time, it was eaten immediately. A wonderful last minute, thrown together dinner. Thank you!
Really, really good. I sliced the peppers instead of leaving them whole to make the recipe a little spicier. I also serve this with toasted baguette slices as an appetizer. YUM!
Prepared this the night before to let the tomatoes marinate then used it over brown rice and chicken the next night. Awesome! The flavors added a welcome flavor to rather bland brown rice and grilled chicken.
